Q: In regards to acquiring a lefty power bat, and I know chances are extremely slim, but what do you think about trading for Adam Dunn this winter? I seem to remember his name being out there a few times over the last few years, so this winter may be no different. He's still fairly young, fills a major hole, would fit in the Pirates' budget, and -- most important -- Reds GM Wayne Krivsky clearly has no problem making trades.
Kovacevic goes on to explain why that's not a good idea: primarily because Dunn isn't all that young and he certainly isn't all that cheap with the contract he just signed. Good reasons the Pirates shouldn't pursue it, and exactly why they will.
So, what would it take from the Pirates for them to acquire Dunn? Dave Williams isn't going to cut it this time. A couple draft picks? The entire rotation? All of the Indianapolis Indians team?
I've got it: Adam Dunn straight up for PNC Park. It'll give us a place to store all the extra hot dogs we'll need for $1 hot dog night.
